Residence hall keys belong to Green Mountain College and are assigned to individual
residents for their personal use only. At the beginning of the academic year, each resident
pays a $40 key deposit, which will be refunded to the student's account when the keys are
returned. Residential students are issued two keys: one universal key for residence hall
front doors and an individual room key. Residential students are responsible for carrying
their assigned keys at all times. Keys are not to be loaned to anyone or duplicated for any
Students must return keys to a Residence Life staff member upon checking out of their
residence hall room. Failure to return the keys at the time of either changing residence
hall rooms or vacating campus will result in forfeiture of the key deposit. Students may not
change rooms and/or keys without the permission of the Department of Residence Life.
Lost keys must be reported to the Campus Security Office immediately so a lock change
can be done. The lost key will be replaced for a fee of $20 for each key, plus a $40 charge
for changing the lock.
